This time we are featuring a very highly specified kitchen - every labour saving device of quality has been included for this discerning and very private client. Many times we are asked for more information on the appliances that we put into our fabulous kitchens so this month I intend to devote our page to a more detailed description of what can be provided by Mulberry. As always, many more views of this unique project can be viewed on our website.
Today we present bespoke walnut doors, complemented perfectly by "Panna Fragola" granite which was also fashioned into a substantial decorative support under the solid walnut breakfast bar.
The refrigeration is provided by the fabulous Fisher and Paykel "Goliath" - huge fridge storage with innovative freezer drawers below then we sneaked in a narrow wine chiller beneath the wine racking. The integrated dishwasher drawers are also by Fisher and Paykel and may be viewed as a working display at our National Avenue studio.
Neff was chosen for their coffee machine, steam oven, combi -microwave and multifunction oven whilst Atag provided the unique induction hob with integral gas wok burner.
Even the undermounted stainless steel sink has every feature - Franke tap with pull out spray facility, soap dispenser, waste disposal unit and the wonderful Quooker instant boiling water dispenser.
As always, lighting plays a major part of good kitchen design and this is no exception - an interesting switchable pattern of ceiling down-lighting brings to life the doors and surfaces to suit any mood whilst the addition of plinth lighting cleverly illuminates the textures of the travertine marble floor. Even the pan drawers and base units have been fitted with lighting to automatically activate when opened and, at the risk of being boring, I must also enthuse about the ball of light created by the crystal Elica "Star" cooker hood straight from "Grand Designs."
Anyway, as always, the final words from our client for once surprised me " Geoff, we love our new kitchen but my favourite thing is the Quooker tap!"
